DC04 rebuild
« on: January 10, 2013, 12:17:35 AM »
When dismantling my DC04 to fit a replacement motor, a thin metal rod 7cm long fell out, I think from the belt cover attached to the motor housing. Anyone know where it goes on reassembly?
A photo would be most helpful as there seems to be no mention of it on the YouTube tutorials.

It came from the clutch/belt cover as you thought - there is a recess that it slides into on the side that faces the motor spindle.

Will try grab a photo unless someone else beats me to it  :))

Thank you so much for the photo. I thought that's where it fitted but wasn't 100% sure. I'll have to get a replacement motor but will let you know how it goes.

Cheers

How to open up a YK-511 motor? Something is rattling about inside and if I can get it out that may solve the problem. I've undone the 4 staked points but can't see how to open it as the motor housing is a tight fit. I've ordered a replacement motor but thought it would be good to repair the original if possible.

If you have undone the four crimps, a smack with a soft hammer should displace the bottom cover.
